Dublin v Tyrone classics on eir sport


Enjoy three classic Dublin v Tyrone clashes from down the years as one of GAA’s biggest rivalries gave us some truly memorable games. eir sport 1, Wed, May 6th from 7pm.

They were games that defined an era for many fans. Starting with the 1995 All-Ireland final as the Dubs, with the likes of Charlie Redmond and a young Jason Sherlock in their ranks, went in search of their first title in 12 long years.

But they were up against a determined Tyrone side marshalled by the talismanic Peter Canavan. Who would come out on top?

Fast forward ten years and another titanic clash, this time it was the 2005 SFC quarter-final as Mickey Harte’s warriors were closing in on their second title in three years as Ulster teams continued to dominate the football landscape.

The sides met again at the same stage three years later. Could Dublin end another long spell without silverware or would mighty Tyrone prevail?

Join us and find out this Wednesday from 7pm.
